This is not a problem, as you've found out, but it's better to not
have a trailing slash in INSTALL_DIR.

Only in etc/ and leim/.  The Unix "make install" removes them after
copying (see the `install:' target in the top-level Makefile.in), but
the Windows build does not want to rely on the utilities required for
that.  If you have them, you can remove those after "make install"

These are created by two explicit lines in nt/makefile, but I don't
know why.  Anybody?
